Knut Magne Risvik from FAST yesterday confirmed - yes, we are in close talks with Yahoo.

Risvik doesn't even deny possible partnerships with MSN...

John, we've had members here on the board complaining about ranking poorly for their paid pages..:)

Also: talking about Yahoo we should perhaps keep in mind they run a directory which relies almost exclusively on PFI.

I agree though - daily refreshing offers opportunities to tweaking, it should give some advantages to people hwo know what the are doing.

What would you think anyhow is the number of paid pages in FAST's db?
I'd be very surprised if FAST's 2 + Bill. index holds more than 0,1% or so of PFI pages. Very probably it's rather 0,01..

Nevertheless, Littleman has lately started a thread on PFI as business model somewhere here, which I can't see to find at the moment, in which some very good points are being made. It's far from being a perfect solution in my view.

If they hook up with Yahoo!, I'm sure the number of paid pages will increase just a little bit. ;)

I have to agree that emulating the INK business model may not be a very "swift" decision.

That's true! i have paid for pages, and they haven't even got updated!
AND I am very unsure about this but i remember hearing a figure that around 2 million pages where PFI, most of the dynamic content from large sites.

I am still going to stick by Google. It seems whenever I use FAST I end up going to Google because I'm frustated with FAST's results. Relevancy is the key, not number of indexed pages. And screw the number of pages indexed anyway! Google's PageRank algorithm has proved successful and I think that it will continue to for some time.

Teoma interests me much more than FAST.

I have used Fast and Google equally over the past year and a half. Both of them have delivered excellent results for the search terms I have requested.

While I am happy to diversify, and a monopoly is rarely a good thing, Google has treated us well as website owners, and as a business. I would only be dissappointed if inktomi got the deal.

FAST needs to clean the garbage out of their index. Check this:
Please, no URL's or spam reporting, thanks

#1 and #2 in FAST are almost exact dupes *and* are just doorway pages from some affiliate. Google has much better results.

Having said that I think FAST has the capacity to step up to the plate and it *will* be nice to have another major player.

Physics - actually it is worse than you stated. #1, 2, and 7 on Fast are affiliate mirrors.
And the only site that listed pigs was the paid banner ad on the left...

Like the man said, a lot more to being relevant than just size.

Whatever might happen, or not happen, I have got myself a few Fast shares... They are pretty low since a couple of months, for no obvious reason.

yes interesting, but is there also a yahoo google and av test as well as a Fast test and we havent found it yet?

It looks very good for Fast overall but I'm not convinced this pre-marital "testing-out" is monogamous and that Fast on this evidence is a shoe-in.. Hopefully Y! is using a c****m.
